Michael Rosenbaum will be back as Lex Luthor for the 2-hour Smallville finale on May 13th. His deal to return was signed Saturday.
“It feels like the stars are aligning, literally. We couldn’t be more excited about having Michael back,” executive producers/showrunners Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson said. “And as far as the way he returns… there’ll be no doubt about how Lex becomes the great rival in Clark Kent’s life. He is the villain of the story.”
“I’m simply doing it for all of the fans out there who made Smallville the great success it is,” Rosenbaum said. “I appreciate all of their passion, their relentlessness and even their threats. Ha ha. I can’t wait to hug the old crew back in Vancouver one last time and see all of my old friends once again….. Oh, and for Lex to become the badass he’s destined to be.”
